Vice Ganda thanks supporters, detractors and Nancy Binay in his birthday speech on “Showtime”

It’s Showtime celebrated Vice Ganda’s birthday on its live telecast today, March 31.

“Ako gusto ko lang naman talagang magpasalamat sa lahat. Yung sinasabi niyong mga nararamdaman niyo towards me, yung mga natutunan niyo sa’kin, yung pagpapasalamat niyo dahil nakakasama niyo ko, yung din saktong sakto ang nararamdaman ko sa inyong lahat.

Ako naman kasi ano maaring hindi ako ang pinakamabait na tao pero I am fair. I reciprocate, yung pagmamahal na nakikita ko, I make sure yung pagmamahal na nararamdaman ko eh maibalik ko dun sa taong nagbigay sa’kin nun, di ba. I am not the sweetest friend, I’m not the sweetest person, I’m not the kindest but I always try to be fair,” said a grateful Vice.

Further, the comedian also thanked both his supporters and detractors, “Thank you so, so much to all those who love me, maraming maraming salamat talaga. And thank you so much to those who hate me, thank you so much for making me very significant part of your lives. Thank you so much for making me relevant every single day. Maraming salamat sa inyong lahat kasi yung pinakamasasarap na salita na nanggaling sa madlang people at yung pinakamasasakit, yung pinakamapapait at pinakamatatamis, pag pinagsama mo, sobrang sarap kaya di pwedeng puro tamis lang, di pwedeng puro pait lang, kailangan pagsamahin natin para makagawa tayo ng isang magandang putahe.”     

Vice also thanked the people important to him one by one, as well as his growing family, “Sa nanay at tatay ko na nagsilang sakin, sa Diyos na nagpahintulot na isilang ako ng mga magulang ko, sa lolo ko at sa lola ko na nagpalaki sa’kin, sa mga kapatid ko na nakasama ko habang lumalaki, sa mga kaibigan ko na naging miyembro na ng pamilya ko, sa pamilya kong palaki ng palaki, sa pamilya kong hindi kong inaakalang makakasama ko sa buhay ko, sa mga luma kong kaibigan na nawala na at mga namatay…” 

He also mentioned Senator Nancy Binay whom he had an issue with during the May 2013 senatorial elections.“…sa mga kaibigan kong bago, Senator Nancy Binay, thank you so much. Nagtetext kami kagabi, nagiging makulay na ang friendship namin ni Senator. Maraming, maraming salamat.”

Further, he continued, “I am just so thankful sa Panginoon dahil siya talaga ang pinakamatalino sa lahat. Walang pinakamatalino taong mas hihigit pa sa talino ng Diyos dahil yung mga hindi nating inaakalang mangyayari ay nangyayari sa pamamagitan ng kapangyarihan niya…” He also said that he thought his career has already reached its peak five years ago but instead, life got even better for him, “Ang bongga mo, Lord. Ikaw ang unkabogable.”  

Vice also wished for “happiness, happiness, happiness” before he blew his the candles on his birthday cake. He received a set of personalized badminton rackets as a present from his Showtime family.
